Weekly Advocacy Recap—OMB Issues Information Request

February 10, 2020

Welcome to the ISSA Advocacy Weekly Recap, our regular roundup of the latest public policy issues impacting the cleaning industry. This week’s recap touches on an OMB information request regarding regulatory enforcement, the spreading global effects of the coronavirus, a challenge to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Risk Management Plan, and more.

OMB Issues Information Request on Regulatory Enforcement
The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is considering “significant reforms” to how federal agencies such as the EPA enforce regulatory policies and penalize violators and has issued an information request to gather “concrete reform proposals.” The feedback may inform regulatory changes with the goal of “protecting Americans against the unjust or arbitrary exercise of government power,” says the OMB.

Effects of Coronavirus Spread through Global Economy
The impact of the new coronavirus comes as China’s economy slows and trading partners shift suppliers to avoid Chinese tariffs and other trade restrictions. The outbreak is undermining hopes for a rebound in U.S.-Chinese trade and increasing the odds of a global economic downturn this year.

14 States, Philadelphia Challenge EPA RMP Rollback
Attorney generals from 14 states and Philadelphia have filed a lawsuit to stop the EPA’s proposed rollback of the Risk Management Plan. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler says the proposed change would reduce regulatory red tape while maintaining safeguards for chemical facilities.
